The 4th October marks a special celebrating in VIP Bottles heart, it is National Vodka Day. With one of the largest and interesting vodka ranges in the UK, come and celebrate the day with us, we won’t disappoint.
The word vodka stems from the Russian word, voda, which means water. Rarely consumed outside of Europe before the Second World War, vodka eventually pulled in many hard liquor fans with its flavourless and versatile appeal.
The birthdate of vodka is assumed to be around the 12th century. Initially concocted for medical purposes, it wasn’t until the 1350s that the drink gained a reputation for what we drink it for today.
Today, vodka is made from many different things such as beets, potatoes, wheat and even grapes like Ciroc.
To celebrate our favourite spirit, we have put together our top 5 vodkas and why you need to add them to your drinks’ shelf, or even drink them as soon as they arrive.
